Because of this issue and the packaged version doesn't work (T3791) there is now no way to use KDevelop on Solus.

Ya, so despite what we're told, AppImage isn't as universal as we're led to relies on host libraries that have changed since AppImage was created

You would have to preload the Solus libxcb for this to be able to run most likely.
